The Rock-itt : March 2010
The future of country music is in good hands if the youngsters who performed at Seaforth are anything to go by; they were great. The Macarthur Country Music Club Band (from the Campbelltown area) are to be commended for the amount of time they give to encouraging young artists at their club and 4 of the 6 who appeared at Seaforth belong, i.e. Georgia, Amelia, Jemma and Mitchell. The other 2 performers live too far away to belong; Ashley comes from the Central Coast and Dean from Maitland. The band got everyone in the mood with 'Just Call Me Lonesome' and 'Wicked Game'. Then John Clement who MC'd the show introduced Georgia White. Georgia demonstrated her yodelling talents and had the line dancers up on the floor with her first number 'I Want to Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart' followed by 'So Wrong'. She then showed her versatility with a beautiful rendition of the Patsy Cline classic, 'Crazy' and finished her set with the upbeat, 'Girl's Night Out'. Amelia Richards made her second very welcome appearance at Seaforth next. Amelia has great stage presence and interacted well with the audience, encouraging the line dancers to get up while she sang one of her favourites, 'Silver Threads and Golden Needles'. Amelia then sang one of her originals, 'You're Mine' with which she won the junior section of the Tamworth Songwriters Association Awards at Tamworth in January, proving that not only does she have a beautiful voice she also has a lot of talent as a songwriter. Then the lovely waltz, 'Could I have this Dance' and finally, she called on everyone to get up for the line dance classic 'Boot Scooting Boogie' Jemma Beech started her set with the lively 'Somedays You Gotta Dance' then slowed the tempo with 'Try a Little Kindness'. Jemma then took the opportunity to thank the band for their playing and their encouragement, "they gave her confidence to perform" before singing 'Too Strong to Break' and finishing with 'Proud Mary' to enthusiastic applause from the audience. After an interval welcomed by the band who were finding the small stage very hot to work on John Dean from Maitland Georgia
